TV: N/A, 8:00 p.m. ET
The Trail Blazers opened as 5-point road favorites for tonight's game but the line was bet up to 6.5. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 202 but was bet down to 201.5 at the majority of online sportsbooks.
As of this writing, 86% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Blazers to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 65% of the betting tickets are on the over.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
Mike Conley (heel) is out for the year for the Grizzlies while Tyreke Evans (personal) is out for tonight. Andrew Harrison is also questionable for Memphis while Maurice Harkless (knee) is out for Portland.
The Trail Blazers trailed at halftime last night in New Orleans but eventually turned it on in the fourth quarter to secure their eighth victory in their last 10 games. I bet against Portland last night and I won't do it tonight. Memphis is horrendous. The Grizzlies are 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games overall, are 1-4 against the number in their last five home games, and are 2-9-1 at the betting window in their last 12 games versus an opponent with a winning percentage above .600. The Blazers, meanwhile, are 21-5-1 against the spread in their last 27 games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game, are 34-15-2 against the number in their last 51 games overall, and are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last four road games.
OUR PREDICTION: PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS -6.5
